Description

This trail starts by branching off of the Franconia Notch State Park Recreational Trail. It soon crosses under Route 3 and a footbridge, then begins ascending in earnest to its junction with the Indian Head Trail. Along this portion of the trail, be sure to take your time as you slog up the trail's steep, relentless grades.

From the Indian Head Trail junction, follow the Mount Pemigewasset Trail to the summit. Take care on the ledges when ice is present. For more information, check out the AMC's White Mountain Guide.

Currently muddy throughout the trail so bring water proof boots. View is incredible at the top with strong wind.

The quicker and easier of two routes to Mt. Pemi. Fine views to the south.

Pleasant trail up, a few patches of ice near the top but they were small and easy to walk around. Great views from the summit! 1.7mi — 2h 30m
